Bridge e-Waste Drives
Bridge has organized and sponsored five e-Waste Drives since 2009.
Most electronic products used in our workplaces and homes contain hazardous substances, such as lead and mercury. When these products reach the end of their useful lives or become obsolete, some are considered hazardous waste. Hazardous waste cannot be discarded in the regular trash! However, current figures compiled by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency indicate that over 2 million tons of electronic waste wind up in landfills each year!
A great option for properly disposing of this waste is to bring these items to our biannual collection days.
Through our most recent e-Waste Drive in April 2013, Bridge collected and properly recycled more e-Waste than ever –
8,912 pounds, just under 4 1/2 tons!
